For those Fire Departments that have previously filed Ambulance Medicaid Reimbursements, the IFCA would like to remind you that the deadline for submitting the reimbursement requests is May 31, 2017. For units who provide ambulance services but have not previously filed: In 2013, Indiana received federal approval to begin providing a supplemental payment adjustment to in-state government-owned ambulance providers. The payment adjustment is intended to reimburse the actual incurred costs of providing ambulance services to eligible Medicaid beneficiaries. This can mean thousands or even millions of dollars that your unit can be reimbursed for monies it has already spent. Please contact Dale Henson at (317) 856-1850 or email@example.com for more information.
